Q: Noise coming from torque converter

asked by on February 24, 2016

I can hear a noise coming from the area of the torque converter near the transmission.

Hi there. A noisy torque convertor signifies that it will need to be replaced soon. Also the torque convertor is connected to other components in your transmission that can also be the cause of this noise. To have this correctly diagnosed, I would have a certified mechanic inspect the car’s noise to determine what repairs are needed.
